Dr. Morse is examining the boys for Company P. Prank Stebritz has fine twins at the depot, a boy and girl. Milton Starr has been confined to his house with grip the past week. ^ The city council met Saturday evening and adjourned until last evening. The examining committee found $54,000 on hand in the county treasury. The Methodists are talking of selling their old church to the highest bidder at public auction. The county board will let the county doctoring by districts the same as last year, and advertise soon. Marriage licenses have been issued to Lewis Eckholrn and Helen Harris, Aura Churchill and Isabel Fox. Algona's death rate for 1898 was five to the 1,000, 15 deaths during the year. The slate death rate was 15 to the 1,000. plan and hopes to see the building go up this season. Mr. Durdall will get plans at once if a site is secured. The new Northwestern time card does not change trains much at Algona. The morning train from the south comes five minutes laler. The Northwestern now runs a passenger from Chicago to Omaha in 12 hours. Secretary Peek says the secretaries of a half dozen counties will meet in a week or two to arrange a new circuit for this year. Clarion wants In and also other county seats. The circuit this year will be better than last year. J. R. Mawdsleyof Hurt has a milk record for the past year that shows what cows will do. His milk checks range from $57.05 up to $102.30 for every month of 1898. His total for milk for the 12 months was a few dollars short of $900. What will beat that record? W. W. Jones will build in the spring on the Metzgar lots west of Dr. Morse's. He has moved into town for the winter, and will soon go on the road letting mall routes. He will put up a neat home and live in Algona hereafter. " Wat" is one of the pioneer boys who has made a big success. Company P is being rapidly organized. At the meeting Saturday evening ten were down from Bancroft and two from Burt. It is expected that Bancroft will furnish 20 enlistments. The military company is a good thing and those who are reorganizing it are to be thanked for their efforts. Mayor Chrischilles read a very valuable paper before the social union PH day evening on municipal ownership and control of electric light and water plants in Algona. N^xt week THE UPPER DES MOINES will publish it in full and comment on it. Miss Turner gave a very entertaining talk on art. Rudolph Anderson won out in the West Point cadet contest at Port Dodge. He is a son of the populist editor at Forest City, and was a popular member of Company F in the war. He is 21 years of age and in every way fitted for the position. His old comrades will compliment him on his success. Will Sterzbach has gone to Seneca to become buttermaker there. His plan to go to Georgia to run the John Wallace creamery has not materialized. When it came to collecting the stock that had been subscribed at Cuthbert it was not forthcoming. Mr. Wallace is now working up a creamery in another town. The county board has let the county grading. E. J. Hatch gets the first and second districts, Jos. Cosgrove the third and fifth, and J. W. Curtis the fourth. The price is about one cent a yard higher than last year, but that was to be expected in view of the demand for labor and the high wages that will prevail. He will then stand on his legal claim. The city will undoubtedly prevent him from putting in ah engine inferior to the one it expected. In any event the matter will soon come to a head, and if Bigelow fails to get an acceptable engine the city will get one. A local interest attaches In Algona to the Hughes murder trial in Masoft City. Ed. and Lottie Hughes fan the first steam merry-go-round at the Kossuth county fair, and for three years in succession were with J. B. Winkel at the fair grounds showing the Domestic machines. They have visited at the Winkel home several times and the Winkels have visited them at Mnson City. Mr. Winkel says they never saw any indication of anything wrong with the family, and ho thinks that it was a sudden infatuation of Mrs. Hughes for the man Ooude which led her to kill her husband, if she is proven guilty. The trial is the most sensational ever held In northern Iowa. The county board spent nearly all day Monday with Dr. Lacy. The doctor holds a judgment of over $300 against the county, and the costs are over $400, some $225 of them on the doctor on account of his suit being sent back by the supremo court. But aside from this the doctor has over $800 of bills that he has not presented for his services to the poor, and these he wants allowed in the settlement he asks. He is willing to cut this $800 batch in two if the county will pay his costs, but this makes only a throwing off of less than $200 on his whole claim, much of which the county does not think it is held for. No conclusion has been reached, but it is doubtful if the county will settle on the basis the doctor holds out for. nutter Mnltcr Wnnted.

It will be the finest musical entertainment ever given in Algona. F. W. Daubney of Decorab has been at Swea City looking at the openingfor a new bank.

Clarke's title in the forty acre tract near the Milwaukee depot that formerly belonged to Harry Walkley. The deed made by Mr. Walkley to Mr, Clarke was carelessly drawn and the Walkley heirs sued to set it aside. The lower court and the supreme court both hold with Mr. Clarke. The "Other Shoe Store" opens up Saturday. That is what C. O. Simpson calls his new store in the Heise block. He has put in some elegant goods and is making a specialty of fine ladies' shoes. He has all kinds, however, to suit everybody and is a shoe man of long experience. Our readers should call and get a souvenir. Bishop Vincent gave a splendid lecture Saturday evening and Sunday preached twice for union meetings in the Congregational church. It is safe to say that two more liberal, broad, sensible, and convincing sermons were never preached in Algona by anybody. The bishop was the guest of Gardner Cowles while in Algona. Sam. Witter, while sawing wood at S. C. Spear's Wednesday, had a paralytic stroke. His right side was wholly paralyzed. He was taken to his home, occupied by Mr. and Mrs. F. W.

With the addition of this valuable instrument to his office, and with the many others makes it as complete as any of those of the large cities of the east. J. A. Hamilton has given the reading room a curiosity. It is a piece of hickory full of iron. It seems that a hickory tree will take the iron out of the soil it grows in and deposit it in the wood. In places in Missouri the hickory is all worthless on that account. The wood will turn a saw or plane just as though it were full of nails. Mr. Hamilton says a man cannot be too careful in buying hickory, for it is easy to get caught. The metal can be seen in the wood in thin sheets, it is so plenty. The managers of the coming meeting of the state sportsmen's association at Algona have appointed committees. C. T. Chubb and M. P. Haggard will arrange for programs, C. C. Call and A.
